Growing Up!

 
Saturday was Anderson's 9 month-day. We spent it with good friends and family in Abilene. Tons of fun! Took him to the doctor today and he is 17 lbs., 10 oz. (6th percentile). His height was 27.25 inches (11 percentile) and his head was, uh, well, in the 90th percentile. No wonder I've been having trouble getting his shirts on. The picture above is the "framer" for the dining room. Anderson's new "tricks" this month are pulling up (and learning to get down), putting new things in his mouth (and learning to let mommy fish them out), chasing after his big sis, and clapping to performances on So You Think You Can Dance. I couldn't have asked for a happier, sweeter, cuter man child.

 
Another big milestone was Maizie's first day of school. It was a bit of a madhouse getting out the door, but I dutifully posed her for first day pics when we got home. She was HYPER, so this is the best we could do. She's loving her class this year with Miss Angela and Miss Jeanne and can really repeat back the things they talk about this year.

 
Here are the two rugrats being so sweet together....

 
And now for the rest of the story. 90% of the time, all is well between the two siblings. But luck allowed me to capture this face when Anderson reached his "sharing" limit. Love it.

See, I would have framed that last one. So cute!

Pryncss, I must respectfully disagree with you and vote with my daughter. That first pic is classic Anderson. But then again, I love all of them. The one of Maizie and loving on Anderson is probably my favorite of the lot, but you have to have one of just Anderson for his dining room display.

As always you do a great job of taking pictures. They're all keepers! It helps that your subjects are so stinkin' cute! Can't believe how quickly Anderson's growing up.
